Kathleen Cucci's Real Texture Talk

Learn about Kathleen Cucci's hair care routine and how she learned to embrace her curls during her semester abroad.

NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!

Kathleen Cucci: My name is Kathleen. I am 20 years old and I'm from Denver, Colorado. I attend Boston College, but I spent the second semester of my junior year studying in London!

NC: How and when did you start embracing your curls?

KC: I straightened my hair quite a bit in high school, but I’ve worn it curly a lot more during college, mostly due to not having enough time in the mornings. Since I’ve been studying abroad the past five months and didn’t bring my straightener with me, I’ve definitely had to embrace my curls more! I don’t think I’ll ever go back to straightening it on a regular basis.

NC: What is your current routine?

KC: I usually shower at night, and I wash and condition my hair every other day. I’m currently using  TRESemmé Smooth & Silky Shampoo and Conditioner which seem to be working fine, but I’m always looking for good anti-frizz products! I try to let my hair air dry as much as possible, but I often end up throwing it in a braid before bed, which gives me nice waves in the morning.

NC: So from start to finish, on a curly day, what's your process?

KC: Since I wash my hair at night, I usually just finger-comb my hair in the morning and apply a smoothing crème (currently using one form Charles Worthington) to try and tame my frizz. I’m also a huge fan of dry shampoo in between washings, so I’ll use that if my hair needs it.
